I have decided to give a more in depth post of what I am trying to achieve.
I want to have 2 drones, one on each side of a subject, independently track and follow a target based upon a visual lock. I would like for these drones to be communicating to QGroundControl for general tracking and safety.
The subject will be cyclist. As the cyclist rides around the track, I want the drones to be on either 90 degree profile of the cyclist. The best option I have found currently is to use dronekit with an OpenCV script. If anybody has a better option, I would be very open to that.
I have some options for a parallel based system that will film and transmit the video footage through wireless 802.11 protocol to a basestation computer. This way, you can see the live feeds from the drones.
I’m currently working with an Odroid XU4 as the companion computer for each Pixhawk 2 that are driving the drones.
One drone is a 7in quad, the second is a 15in quad. I have flow these for all sorts of manned and semi autonomous missions, but doing it with a visual lock has been outside of my expertise.
Is there any chance someone might be interested in taking this up? I am open to suggestions on budgets.
